I made this project as a bit of a joke gift for a friend of mine who is moving away. I have made a ton of crocheted amigurumi, but this was my first attempt at knitting a plush toy like this. A crochet project like this would go fairly quickly, and I was pleased to... Continue Reading →
Tiny Agender Pride Kitty
I got a batch of fingering weight cotton yarn over the holidays and realized I had the perfect colors to make something with the agender pride flag. I finally decided on this tiny kitty. It is absolutely one of the tiniest amigurumi projects I've ever done, at only about 2.5 inches tall. This project took... Continue Reading →
Cat Doorstop finished
This little friend was very quick and easy to make. The only reason it wasn't done sooner was that I had to wait for the marbles I ordered as ballast to arrive in the mail before I could complete the body. I miss crochet sometimes, and the speed of the projects is one of the... Continue Reading →
Cat Doorstop started
This is a project I've had in my head for a while now. We usually prop our bedroom door open to make sure that the cats don't accidentally trap themselves in with us overnight. Most of the time we just use an old slipper for this, but I have really been wanting a cute proper... Continue Reading →
Reversible Mood Octopus finished!
Mood Octopus finished! I got it done over the weekend, and I love it so much. Just look at their cute little face(s)! The two expressions are adorable and they make me so happy. It took a few tries on each of them to get the mouth the way I wanted, but it was way... Continue Reading →
Mood Octopus progress (5)
All of the crochet on this project is finished! I got the last few arms done today, so now I have the whole weekend to get everything sewn together and add the finishing details. Every time I make an octopus I complain about having to make 8 arms. With this one I had to make... Continue Reading →
Mood Octopus progress (4)
I've added a few more adorable tiny octopus arms today. At this rate I might actually get some knitting done on my cardigan this week too. The deeper I get into this project the more I realize how daunting the amount of sewing involved actually is. Still, I won't let that keep me from enjoying... Continue Reading →
Mood Octopus progress (3)
I'm still slowly making my way through this project. I got a few octopus arms crocheted today, and might try to do one more this evening if my elbow cooperates. At this rate I should easily be able to get them all finished in time to sew everything together this weekend.
Mood Octopus progress (2)
I managed to finish the yellow half of the octopus body today. Now I just have the yellow arms to finish and the stuffing and sewing to do. This is a fun little project, even if I do have to take my time with it. I can't wait to have it finished and sitting on... Continue Reading →
Mood Octopus progress
This weekend was fairly busy with family stuff so I didn't get a lot of crafting done. Instead I spent a long time kayaking and then hanging out with other people inside of my house with no masks on (everybody fully vaxed). It felt strange but was really nice. I did crochet a few rounds... Continue Reading →
Reversible Mood Octopus started!
One of my goals for this month was to make some amigurumi since it's been a while. I started this octopus over the weekend. The pattern has you essentially make two octopuses in different colors, that you sew together to make it reversible. I've finished crocheting all the parts for the blue side and am...

The Child finished!
It's an Xmas miracle, I finished him in time! It's probably a good thing I finished with so little time to spare. If I had to look at his adorable little face for too long I would never be able to give him away!
